so, let's get right to rob marciano, first, the severe weather you are tracking. >> reporter: lines of strong storms moving across the east. i want to focus on the flash flood warnings through d.c., baltimore, in through philadelphia. into new england overnight. this is probably going to be some problems for the morning commute. >> we saw the headline today, the first official hurricane in the atlantic. >> reporter: 80 miles an hour. look at this image, though. it's a very small storm. it makes it difficult to predict the intensity. the forecast track still brings it into the caribbean late weekend. still too soon to say if it gets to the u.s., but the next three to four weeks, going to be very active. we're getting into primetime for hurricane season. >> rob, thank you. we turn now to former president jimmy carter. tonight, his candor, his provery, talking about where his cancer has spread to and the next stems now. president carter saying at first he thought he had just weeks to live. now, saying he is ready for what lies ahead. and just hours after he spoke today, he underwent treatment in atlanta.
